Passport Tokyo: Freemans Sporting Club

Mar 25, 2014


The Freemans empire continues to grow. In addition to an eatery, men’s grooming salons and bespoke tailoring studios, renaissance man Taavo Somer has gone global, opening a Tokyo branch of his highly curated, men’s clothing shop, Freeman’s Sporting Club. F.S.C.’s driving philosophy is creating a haven for quality clothing made in the USA by skilled artisans – a mantra that Man of the World truly appreciates. This ethos still remains intact for their new store; the field has opened up to include notable Japanese handcrafted brands like Tokyo-based accessories maker, Superior Labor.

The new Aoyama store is quite massive – it’s 5 floors and 6,500 sq.ft housing a Bench-made Bespoke suiting studio, barbershop,  a bar serving cocktails created by Jim Meehan, and even a 100-ft vertical garden in an outdoor atrium.

See more images of the Freemans Sporting Club Tokyo shop below, and whenever you’re in Japan, it’s certainly a worthy place to visit.
